Weren’t many illegal properties sold to Spaniards though. Racism is institutionalised in Spain be it as in the case of the Priors where their house was demolished and the larger villa next door belonging to a Spaniard still stands! At the lesser scale the funcionarios who often reply to valid complaints such as having no water, child bullying, blocking an entrance gate with the stock phrase If you don’t like it go back to your own country Something that would be a sackable offence in the UK.

Put all the silly childish photos on you want but there is lots of complaints around the British forums and there is lots of racist comments around the Spanish forums. On a positive note the Spanish dislike the Gypsies more than they dislike the British :mrgreen:

Maybe you meant to write something like “I know of a lot of cases of xenophobia in Spain” rather than “The Spanish are very xenophobic” ?
